GAUGE:

Rnds 1-8 = 4 in. (10 cm). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

1. Bag is worked in rnds. At the end of each rnd, join with sl st in first st. Do not turn at the beg of rnds.
2. Handles are worked separately and sewn to top of Bag.

Mother's Day Bag Reviewed by bert horrocks on 2011-09-16 *****
This was super easy, the skill level should be an advanced beginner. I made this for my mother in a felt type of material. Here are some pictures of it before I felted it. I added an inside pocket, and made the handles 76 ch long instead, for those who have chunkier arms, and like bags a littler loser from your armpit. This bag turned out awesome, and I'm starting another one with a bigger hook, to make it more of a modern beach bag. Easily add more lines to make a deeper bag, but it was big enough, I placed a towel in it, and it was more than enough room. LOVED THIS BAG
